Why if there is a new map coming out "soon" is there all these changes happening? Wouldnt it be smart to just focus on the new map, if it does exist. Sense all these changes wont do a thing once its done? Maybe there is something im missing?

Focus is on the new version, but that doesn't mean current version balance changes wont take place since there are certain requests about them :)

Why was photon cannon buffed but spine crawler nerfed?

Photon Cannon has been nerfed also.


Stats that have been nerfed:
-10 On base damage, -15% Less splash fraction per hit, removed health regeneration and added half of its total health to "Shields", which in case there is a ghost on a team, can simply EMP and remove half health instant.
In addition, received +1 armor (Shield/Health) and (+3 Faster regen on Shield Only).

Cost of base defences still needs to be increased though

With these upcoming changes, if a cost increase will be applied also, the maximum it can go is +50 more expensive.
Still this has to be tested first.

+50 would still be a very good change
